    Keels Food Products is not alone. Out of the 52 financial results released as at 3rd February 2017, December quarter profits have declined in 26 companies, which is a dismal 50 percent. Disappointing and depressing news for the struggling Colombo Stock Exchange.
    This is a reflection of the effectiveness of the poor economic policies of the Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe who is leading the economy front under Sirisena Wickramasinghe regime
